For the 27th consecutive year a Colloquium for Doctoral Students in Accounting will be organised in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association. The 2011 Colloquium will take place on April 16-19 just before the EAA Annual Congress.
The core faculty proposed for the Colloquium will be composed of leading researchers in the field.
Applications should be submitted as soon as possible and certainly no later than November 15, 2010.
The organising Institutions, i.e. the European Accounting Association (EAA) and the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM), attach considerable importance to the Doctoral Colloquium. Not only does it provide a way of stimulating sound doctoral research, but it also enhances the network of cross-national contacts between younger accounting researchers, and between researchers and practitioners.
THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE HAS BEEN REACHED (November 15).
